    What a lovely interview you did with Robyn.
    Yes, Modern Drummer Magazine has been my lifeline for more than half of my life. And I’ve read many of Robyn’s articles as a growing drummer and working musician in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
    The wanders of social media and the internet bringing us like-minded people together.

    Blessings.

      Hello Derrick, One of our first interviews was a friend, Nick Buda who grew up in South Africa until his early years. I believe episode 2 or 3!! So long ago – ha. Anyway, thanks for contacting us and listening. All the best to you. – Matt

    I am so grateful to find this excellent interview and podcast – coming here from a post in my favorite Steely Dan Facebook group – that brought good memories as well as references to check out.
    I’m gonna look for, in fact, oder Robyn’s book in my local bookstore later this week and I’ll appreciate the heart blood that went into its writing. Thanks for bringing it to us <3

    Wonderful interview! “He had other plans.” Funny (and validating) to hear Robyn say that. I remember the changing of the guard very clearly and all I can say is, did he ever.
